What are family law solicitors, lawyers or attorneys?

Family law relates to a large number of affairs, as outlined below. However, within what seems to be a very similar area, for example within child matters, different countries and even states within the same country will have quite different legislation.

Lawyer is a broad term, covering many legal aspects. In some countries you will seek a family lawyer, in another they will be called a family attorney, a family solicitor.

You may also need to look for a good barrister who specialises in family law. However, with a barrister, you may need a solicitor's referral. Some barristers offer a so-called "reverse referral", which means they will find a solicitor for you. This solicitor will then work with this barrister regarding your family law matters.

Family lawyers in your local area should be able to advise you on hhow you can get started with solving your family and child law matters.

When your family needs a lawyer

At some stage almost every family needs a lawyer. Sometimes it's for pleasant reasons, like to help you with your assets and better provide for your family. At other times, it may be for not-so-pleasant or outright distressing reasons. You may be going through separation or divorce. You may want to ensure you have the right level of custody or access to your children. You may need to ensure you get financial support from your partner after you part ways.

In these distressing times a family solicitor or barrister may be able to help you not only achieve the desirable outcome, but also protect you from consequences of actions that may otherwise impact your settlement.

There are plenty of options for family disputes, most of them get settled without the need to go to court. A family lawyer may be able to advise on counselling options, negotiation and dispute resolution that may help you solve your issues without taking them to court.

However, in case these pre-court negitiations should fail, a family layer should be able to assist you with court proceedings.

Types of family law expertise

There are many areas that famil lawyers may be able to help with. You may seek lawyers such as:

Depending on your circumstances, you may want to add extra protection to the wealth you have accumulated before gettign married. Legal agreements protecting your assets and property should be written up and signed with the assistance of a solicitor. You may also want to check if your spouse-to-be is suggesting an agreement that may pose some risks or threats to your wealth later on. Also, often people who are getting married or enter de-facto relationships after their first marriage has ennded, may want extra financial protection.

One of the most painful, heart-breaking areas of law: often children, instead of being the most loved and protected members of our family, become the object of games and revenge from one of the parents when the marriage breaks down. Negotiations and tricks go on forever, adults seem to forget that there's a real young person suffering hugely from the marriage breakdown, but their suffering is multiplied by the dirty games one or both of the parents play, knowing how much they hurt the other parent.

Often, the leaving parent is trying to avoid or minimise the financial support provided to the children after divorce or separation. All sort of excuses are being used: "the government pays you", "you'll waste it anyhow", "look, I'm broke", "look, I've lost my job". Family lawyers can help you get financial support for your children protected and they can best advise what future scenarios can hapen.

Also, there are many cases of domestic violence and child abuse behind the family door. Sometimes the other parent has no idea about the abuse happening, sometimes the parent has been forced and intimidated to accept the unacceptable violence. In these cases the help of family lawyers and social institutions may be invaluable.

One of the taboo areas in most societies, domestic violence seems to be way more wide-spread than generally thought. Some cultures put a lot of emphasis on protecting the weaker and more vulnerable members of the society. Unfortunately, there are plenty of cultures that covertly or openly approve violence against those who should require most protection. Luckily, most civilised countries have legal systems that can help victims of domestic viloence break the vicious circle and stop the abuse. Seek legal help if you are a victim of domestic violence, or if you can see it happen to someone in your family.
